Five Events for Detroit Entrepreneurs in August

One of the best things you can do as an entrepreneur is network and learn from others. Starting a business is hard work and you can’t do everything on your own. Often an entrepreneur is trying to build a team, searching for customers, perfecting a product or service, and thinking about ways to grow.

Luckily for us in Detroit there’s a ton of great networking opportunities. Get out and meet new folks and learn new insights that can help you with your business this month. Here are five upcoming events that an entrepreneur in Detroit can check out.
